University System of Maryland at Hagerstown awarded 10 scholarships recently at an awards ceremony in the USM-H lobby.
They were the first recipients of the USM-H Scholarship Fund. Each student received a $2,5000 scholarship for the 2009-10 academic year.
At the awards reception, David Warner, USM-H executive director, and Gaye McGovern, USM-H advisory board chair, congratulated each recipient and presented the students with free tickets to the Elizabethtowne Feaste and Frolic scholarship fundraiser dinner on Sept. 12. The scholarship funds were raised from the Feaste and Frolic fundraiser held in fall 2008, and similar funds will be raised from the fundraiser in September.
"USM-H is extremely pleased to be honoring these outstanding students with well-deserved scholarship funds. The funds were graciously raised through community support for our institution," Warner said.
